After simulating in Honey BEE i have check the idf file and now
I am performing a simulation assuming the following parameters
- SurfaceConvectionAlgorithm:Outside DOE 2 -Heat Balance algorithm: ConductionTransferFunction
- Zone air heat balance :AnalyticalSolution
I have assessed the uvalue of a wall without surface thermal resistances because are both calculated by Eplus itself per each timestep.
Assuming that my wall has an U value of x W/m2K and i want to check if this value is the actual one calculated by the software, should I have to subtract from
Surface Avg Face Conduction Rate - Surf Outside HG Rate - Surface Inside HG Rate
and then divided it by the difference in temperature btw indoor and outdoor and the overall area? ( case without take into account conductive solar gain)
Following the previous for a wall of 0.98 W/m2K after the permutations i get a result that is almost two times. Why?
Furthermore If i divide the Surface Avg Face Conduction Rate by the difference in temperature btw indoor and outdoor and the overall area (without solar conductive gain) i don’t get a result that is equal to the sum of the above mentioned uvalue plus the outside and inside convective coefficients .
Did I forget something?
I am very concerned because I want to check manually the reliability of the results and i still don’t get any correct Uvalue, thus leading to higher loads.
Thanks in advance
